Following the approval of the Chinese Ministry of Education, GTIIT will offer the following academic Bachelor of Science programs. All programs will comply both with Technion-Israel Institute of Technology requirements and the Chinese MOE requirements. Hence, a GTIIT undergraduate will be awarded both a Technion degree and a GTIIT graduate diploma and degree.

Programs in 2018:

BSc in Chemical Engineering

College: College of Engineering

Duration: 4 Years

Description: The chemical industry globally produces thousands of products required by people today. Chemical engineers are key members of all branches and activities of this industry.


Chemical engineers deal with a variety of areas: energy (power plants, renewable, solar), water treatment (desalination, wastewater treatment), polymers, microelectronics, nanotechnology, pharmaceutical and biotechnology, petrochemicals, security, environmental quality and more. The chemical engineer is involved in related processes from initial design to the finished product. Change is at the heart of chemical engineering. It changes structure and changes of materials to arrive at useful or valuable insights about characteristics or actions.


Following basic science courses, with a strong emphasis on mathematics, physics and chemistry, the program provides a broad education in process fundamentals that include material and energy balances, thermodynamics and transport phenomena. Finally, the students are directed to integrative courses that cover process and plant designs as well as those that deal with specific environmental problems and appropriate technologies for treating them. The chemical engineering program in GTIIT emphasizes environmental technologies, organized as a minor in the program (about 21 of 156 credits). This enables the graduate engineer to deal with technologies for the abatement of water, air or soil pollutants and preventing the deterioration of environmental quality.


Career opportunities for chemical engineers are broad, and include management of factories or  chemical plants; planning chemical or biochemical processes and plants; supervising production plant teams; simulating processes to improve their output and control their effects on the environment. The graduate engineer can work in the abovementioned industries or in engineering design offices or governmental regulatory bodies. Chemical engineers trained in this program will be able to design and implement processes that will prevent environmental pollution, operating on the premise that it is easier, cheaper and better to prevent environmental harm by advanced planning, rather than repairing damages.

BSc in Biotechnology and Food Engineering

College: College of Engineering

Duration: 4 Years

Description: A degree from the Faculty of Biotechnology and Food Engineering trains engineers in two areas: biotechnology and food. The program provides a unique combination between engineering and technological fields and areas of natural and life sciences, in particular, biotechnology. Working with biological materials is common to both fields, and provides a basis for core courses in engineering and technology.


The program is designed to prepare graduates for work in different fields of biotechnology or food engineering – in diverse industries that incorporate high-technology and are based on biotechnological and biochemical processes. Graduates can be employed, among other fields, in the food industry or areas such as pharmaceuticals; cosmetics; environmental protection; standards institutes, and food and drug regulation.


The four-year program consists of a basket of core courses in mathematics, physics, chemistry and computers, which together with advanced engineering courses, provides the background for integrating engineering studies into advanced subjects of life sciences and biotechnology. The remainder of the program is based on three areas: biotechnology; engineering and technology for food engineering; and life and food sciences. A portion of studies take place in a pilot plant and include visits to companies.

BSc in Material Science and Engineering

College: College of Engineering

Duration: 4 Years

Description: Material Science and Engineering is an advanced area, which is entering many varied industries at a fast pace. The great importance of materials engineering lies in the development of new processes and materials required for advanced industries.


The materials engineer chooses  materials suitable for various engineering applications; is involved in R&D of materials from the nuclear through the molecular levels; researches, develops and implements processes, as well as product quality and reliability assurance; improves material properties; investigates product failure; applies advanced analytic methods; and manages technology.


Specialization areas include: metallurgy and metallic materials; electronic materials; ceramic materials; polymers and plastic materials; complex materials; environmental protection of materials; methods of characterizing materials.


This program ensures the qualification of materials engineers prepared for employment in both R&D and industrial positions. The first study tier focuses on basic science courses (mathematics, physics, chemistry and computer science), along with introductory courses in materials engineering. The second tier includes advanced courses, in which  students acquire a sound scientific basis in  the main areas of materials engineering, and can then specialize in some of the fields mentioned above.

As a research university, GTIIT aim to attract a large international population of research students. These students will serve as teaching assistants and lead review sessions, which constitute between 20%-25% of typical Technion coursework.

At present we enroll graduate students (mostly PhD candidates) at Technion's graduate school in Haifa, Israel. These students will be supervised by GTIIT faculty who hold Technion academic appointments. Masters and PhD degree certificates will be issued by the Technion.
